What is Hepatitis?

Hepatitis is a viral infection that affects the liver. There are several types of hepatitis viruses, including hepatitis A, B, C, D, and E. Hepatitis can be spread through contact with infected bodily fluids or contaminated food or water. Symptoms of hepatitis can include fatigue, jaundice, and abdominal pain. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

If you suspect you have been exposed to hepatitis or have symptoms such as abdominal pain, jaundice, or fatigue, it's important to see a doctor to receive appropriate testing, diagnosis, and treatment to prevent liver damage and other complications. Treatment for hepatitis may involve antiviral medications, rest, and lifestyle modifications such as avoiding alcohol and maintaining a healthy diet.
